I'm with smokin and hawg on this one. Every once in awhile when I get some obsessive compulsive thoughts and the 0000 steel wool comes out.

Know the feelin'. I've gone OCD on a '61 colt Pietta recently.  Hits me every now and again.

Dang am I the only Hombre that likes his Brass Patina'd not polished jus' cleaned? I had to ask  ;) {?( &j(

Nope. I like it that Patina'd look to SG.  ;)

CK If you want to keep your brass looking good buy a can of "Wright's Silver Cream" and use it. Works real good and don't harm the brass or eat away the brass like the Brasso and steel Wool. I used it one time on my Colt 51 brass frame and it was so pertty you could see yourself in it.  :)

If it's not broke don't try fixin it.

"....don't harm the brass or eat away the brass like ... steel Wool." How many years would it take to do that every few hours every day for me to have whittled away the trigger guard to nothing.....  (^h     {_K   I feel my OCD kicking in  {:(

I'm probably the one with the OCD. I like a nice, mellow, amber color to my brassers, but it only lasts a short while before it starts to look unkempt or neglected. It's at that point where the OCD kicks in and out comes the Flitz.
Besides, I console myself with the thought that a new Reb soldier would not have been issued a gun with a mellow amber patina, but rather, a brand new revolver packed in grease. (?^

A little buffing with white rouge on a felt Dremel Buffing Wheel, & the trigger-guard shines like gold.

So you're gonna shine it up and keep it packed in grease so you can be a new reb soldier every time you use it? Never mind the fact that no reb soldier ever used a brass 58. (?^

BTW that's a .380 conical. They won't fit like that on my Piettas.

All right, where'd you get those .380 conicals?  :'(
If there's a mold, where also?
Thanks!

Just read through this thread for the first time and I was thinking the same thing. Where did you get those .380 conicals? Inquiring minds need to know.
